that president obama might not wait for congress before taking action. political correspondent carl ram ron. >> they opened the first meeting with victim and gun safety groups and recalled the rampage that killed 20 children. in connecticut last month. >> i don't think anything touched the heart of the american people profoundly, seeing the young children. >> the president promised quick response in wake of the attack and biden said the legislative and executive actions are possible. insiders say he could present findings next week. mr. obama indicated support for among other things ban on assault weapons. new restrictions on magazines and loophole free background check. national data base to track weapons and increase mental health efforts. >> there is a wide consensus in the gun safety area that should be done around the table. >> he will meet with the other side, even an official from the national rifle association that opposes attempt to restrict gun rights. they proclaimed january 19 gun appreciation day. they want a big show of support at gun show, stores and shooting ranges. the grou
all know, these are high days for liberal america and we are watching president obama very closely to see if he will be a leader for all americans or just left wing folks? so far the evidence is that mr. obama is moving further to the left. there is no question that some kind of gun control will be embraced by the obama administration. looks like they will will try to ban certain kind of assault weapons. they will want the feds to register firearms much like you have to register your cower car. talking points believes the legislation will have a tough time getting through the house. there is danger for the republicans because most americans do want some reasonable restrictions on powerful weapons. in the same vein immigration reform will most likely happen. must get more hispanic americans to support it therefore we can expect a quasiamnesty for law abiding illegal aliens already in the country. they have to jump through a few hoops it will take some time but they should be able to stay in this country. gay marriage front the supreme court hearing two cases. what's likely to happen
to reality. i think they were trying to create the narrative that president obama had decimateed al-qaeda. at the expense to the troops. we dept know who took the troops outed on we are not moving forward until we get to the bottom of what happened in benghazi. the only leverage i have, is the nomination. i want to find out who changed the talking points, deleting references to al-qaeda. state department clearly indicated this place was death trap. what did the president do? what did he know about benghazi? kind of leadership did he exert on 9/11? not unfair for answers to the administration. they stonewall and try to get benghazi behind them politically in the rear-view mirror. it will stand firm get the basic answers that should have been given to the congress months ago. this is a big deal to me. we need to learn from what happened. how this place became a death trap, while we couldp respond on september 11 better tanp we did. why and how susan rice and the president himself told stories for weeks after the attack that had no basis in reality. >> bret: senator, do you know where
president obama's choice for the cia director this time in the white house hands over more information about that attack in benghazi. the president nominated his counter terrorism advisor john brennan. did so yesterday to take over the agency where he spent 25 years. the south carolina republican senator lindsey graham tells fox news he will not vote to confirm anybody for the job until he gets answers to more than 100 questions about benghazi. >> this administration stone walling to congress. they are trying to get benghazi behind them politically in their rear view mirror. i'm going to stand firm to get the basic answers that should have been given to the congress months ago. >> it would be unfortunate, i think, if in pursuit of this issue, which was highly politicized, the senate would hold up the nomination of john brennan to be director of the central intelligence agency. >> shepard: it's not only benghazi. brennan is also facing criticism about the droning of terror suspects. team fox coverage continues now. james rosen at the state department tonight. james? >> shep, good evening. as
allied groups do not want to cause president obama even more of a headache by portraying him as a fringe character because he most likely will end up being confirmed unless a republican senator puts a hold on his nomination. >> let's talk about that. that fringe characterization. we had senator chris murphy speaking out earlier about the republicans and just how much they're itching for a fight. take a listen to this. >> republicans are spoiling for a fight. i think they recognize that this guy's coming into his second term with a head of steam. that he's very well regarded on issues of foreign policy. the republicans used to hold an advantage on that mantle. have lost it to an extent. so they just want to pick a fight. >> hogan, here's the thing. are they truly itching for a fight on this especially given the optics of how they were able to, the right that is, kind of sour the test balloon that was that of susan rice? and now they're trying to sour the test balloon that is chuck hagel. we're just a couple hours away from the fact that he will be put up for this appointment. doesn't it l
, better known as obama care. we get an explanation here tonight from nbc's lisa myers. >> reporter: as a pediatrician, dr. jan mayzell knows all about rising medical costs but she was stunned to discover the cost of her own health insurance is going up a whopping 25% this year. >> i'm impacting my ability to retire because i'm depleting my savings to keep this health insurance. >> reporter: some insurance companies in california including anthem blue cross, aetna and blue shield of california are proposing rate increases of 20% or more for some individual customers. today the california insurance commissioner deemed one proposed group increase unreasonable and accused companies are trying to maximize profits. >> it's a disaster. it explains why we have 6 million to 7 million californians who simply can't afford health insurance and it's not going to get any better. >> reporter: and it's not just california. in florida and ohio, insurers have instituted double-digit rate increases. new york, which unlike california has power to roll back rates has generally held increases below 10%.
his job. not everyone is happy. and a columnist suggests that president obama is a disappointment. and when police would be able to confiscate your guns. let's go "outfront." >> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. the last time the first round of voting was too close was 1983. he got only six more than the bare minimum to keep his job. as for the tears they did come from none other than john bainer in -- boehner to his party members after the narrow victory. >> if you come here humbled by the opportunity to serve, if you've come here to be the determined voice of the people, if you've come here to carry the standard of leadership, demanded not by our constituents, but by the times, then you've come to the right place. >> outfront tonight, one republican who did not support john boehner today was not moved by those tears. freshman congressman, ted yoho of florida. today was your first day in congress and you came out with a strong statement. let me just play for you how your vote for speaker went down. here it is. >> you voted for majority leader eric cantor, not john boehner
about a u.s. di diplt be openly gay. he has since apologized for that comment. president obama says he would be a perfect fit at the pentagon. >> he understands that america stands strongest when we stand as allies and as friends. as a successful businessman he know os even as we make tough fiscal choices we have to do so wisely. >> hagel would be the first enlisted soldier from the vietnam war to serve as secretary of defense. he earned two purple hearts and saved his wounded brother. some republicans are concerned hagel won't be enough of a defender of pentagon spending. >> the fact of the matter is i fear he is going to try to use senator hagel as a foil to pursue this hollowing out of the military that secretary panetta has raised concerns about by the draconian cuts and the is a questions teresa payton. >> hagel would be -- and the sequester. >> not as difficult ahead for john brennan. >> unlike tolikelikely to drawe criticism. if confirmed it would be a home coming. he was considered for the cia post in 2008 but wealth drew his name to avoid contentious questioning over the agenc
. obama may appoint mr. hagel to take a place at the pentagon. as almost score setting matter i almost hope he does. it would confirm a point i made earlier this column earlier this year, that mr. obama is not a friend of israel. >> you could hardly think of another leading contender for that position who would be, who would raise more eyebrows than chuck hagel when it comes to israel. you heard earlier jennifer griffin quoting the line about the jewish lobby, which is interesting because millions of americans who are christians and not jewish are also supporters of israel. there is the conflation between the jewish lobby and israel lobby which is very disturbing. there is broader record especially concerning iran would make anyone concerned for the security of is rainfall and the relationship between israel and the united states worried about his position as secretary of defense. jon: but this is a guy who served two terms in the senate. >> right. jon: he is a decorated vietnam veteran, a purple heart recipient. >> two purple hearts. jon: two purple hearts. why not put him in at the t
with them. they want to send a message and want to send a big one toe president obama and congress just days before the president's second inauguration. bill: a democrat in california, self-proclaimed devoted sportsman leading a congressional task force rather on gun violence. congressman mike thompson says he wants to hear ideas from every side before he meets with the vice president scheduled for monday of next week. >> i think we all need to be involved. this needs to be the part-time profession of everybody for a while until we get it right. bill: congressman thompson, already considering recommending a ban on assault weapons and limiting the purchase of certain magazines. also under consideration is proposing a national background check. martha: all right. dealing with the mortgage meltdown. there are some brand new rules that are about to be unveiled and they are meant to protect borrowers from loans they can't afford and from the kind of debacle we saw in 2008. but it could make it very difficult for some people to actually get a mortgage. stuart varney joins me now, host of "varney &
tom hooper, we know affleck, quinton tarn tino, and catherine bigelow. >> president obama is sticking with his trusted chief of staff for arguably the most important position in his second term cabinet, given the challenges ahead. what's the reaction from the markets from foreign capitol and from jack lew as treasury nominee. u.s. economics editor for "the economist," and senior economics reporter steve leaseman. steve, first to you. what are the markets saying? what is jack lew's reputation in wall street and what do you see coming forward with debt negotiations? >> i think this appointment is being taken advisedly in the sense that it's a kind of wait and see. you know, from my perspective, having covered more or less -- more or less degrees, seven of the past treasury secretaries, jack lew does come to the table with a bio that perhaps has less independence in it than any treasury secretary i can remember. robert rubin, hailing from goldman sachs, salary summers was a renowned economist. paul o'neil from alcoa. there's nothing on lew's resume that suggests any measure of independen
. this is unfolding as the first big debate in the second term of barack obama. we've got budget issues and outside of those this is the biggie. some are pushing back on this gun appreciation day particularly online. some on the left suggesting, and i'll just read you one of the, you know, more out there tweets, suggesting that this is a veiled threat to the president of the united states of assassination by choosing mlk day as gun appreciation day. and so it's come to that. your thoughts? >> well, so much for an adult national discussion. all of the things that -- and there is some hope out there that it might be revived, but what we've seen in pretty short order, in less than a month, we've seen the national discussion that was spurred by that tragedy in sandy hook elementary turn back to sort of the tribalized version of the debate over guns. we've seen that liberals, and you mentioned governor cuomo, you mentioned vice-president biden, attorney general eric holder in the mix, too, making it very plain, making it very clear that they see this as gun control, which haven't had a serious discussio
president obama is a disappointment. and sweeping changes to america's gun laws, proposed, when police would be able to confiscate your guns. a possibly huge move. let's go "outfront." >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, drama, intrigue, tears, it was almost byzantine. under fire, john boehner narrowly won a first round vote to keep his job as house speaker. it's pretty amazing, because the last time the first round of voting was too close to call was 1923. so after all the votes were meticulously counted, boehner's tally topped out at 220. that is only six more than the bare minimum he needed to keep his job. now, as for the tears, of course, they did come from none other than john boehner. in an emotional victory speech to his house members after the narrow victory. >> if you come here humbled by the opportunity to serve, if you've come here to be the determined voice of the people, if you've come here to carry the standard of leadership, demanded not by our constituents, but by the times, then you've come to the right place. >> outfront tonight, one republica
... could've had a v8. >> bret: timely tonight, we are getting ready for president obama's second inauguration, a big speech, a lot ofy moment and at times like this it's looking back at history. president obama took his ad-mile-an-hour ration for one former president to new heights. >> people have been asking me a lot about the film lincoln, and, you know,. >> is this your lincoln moment. >> well, no, look. a, i never compare myself to lincoln and b. [ laughter ] >> it's tough. it's just tough. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that's it for this "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. >> shepard: this is the fox report. tonight, the massacre at the movie theater. today court. chilling testimony. what brought officers on the stand to tears. plus, warring in washington. as the president named his picks for two key positions. nominees on the front line of our national security. >> these two leaders have dedicated their lives to protecting our country. >> shepard: former senator chuck hagel for secretary of defense and counter terrorism advisor john brennan for t
again. happy new year. even before president obama's autopen signed this week's deal into law, it was clear that any cease-fire in washington's battles over taxes and spending would be painfully brief. three new deadlines loom. by the end of february, the treasury will lose the power to borrow more to pay america's bills. across-the-board spending cuts to every federal program taken on march 1st and the government will run out of all congressional funding by the end of march. three more coming fast and with that let me turn to the man who negotiated last week's compromise with the white house, senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. thank you for joining us, senator. >> good morning, george. >> i know you think the deal you negotiated is imperfect and you want to fix it as we approach the debt limit. you say no increase in the debt limit without major cuts in spending. the president says he won't even negotiate over that. so to borrow general david petraeus' famous quote from the iraq war, how does this end? >> well, first let me say these last-minute deals are no way to run
news is confirming president obama is expected to nominate jack lieu the white house chief of staff in that position. it will likely happen by next week. they will have to confront the debt ceiling. lew was white house director back in 2011. the search will resume this morning for two teenagers who fell through a frozen lake in new jersey. neighbors say they heard people yelling for help last night. they saw the boys struggling down in the water. two neighbors tried to help the boys but they had to turn back because it was too dangerous. crews searched for hours last night. so far no signs of the boys. >>> the preliminary hearings for the accused gunman in colorado continues today. haunting details about the july hooting were revealed including that holmes bought his movie ticket 12 days before the movie. veteran officers fought back tears as they described stepping over their victims inside that theater and rushing them to the hospital. dozens of survivors and victim's families packed into the courthouse. for many it was the first time facing that shooter. >>> stress. honestly you
is among eight people killed by a u.s. drone strike in pakistan. as you probably know the obama administration has stepped up the use of drones overseas to target suspected terrorists. president obama's nomination of john brennan to be the next cia director suggests that trend is likely to continue. brennan, a strong proponent of drones as the president's chief counterterrorism advisor. for more on how the u.s. drone program works let's get to chief washington correspondent james rosen. he is live for us at the state department. james? >> reporter: jon, good morning. this program presents a consistent headache for the diplomats in this building and who must frequently contend with complaints from afghan and pakistani officials who say these drones all too often wind up killing innocent civilians instead of terrorists the drone program is one of the national security initiatives that president obama inherited from the bush administration and one which the current commander-in-chief has dramatically expanded. for all his criticism of president bush during the 2008 campaign over hi
launches president obama's formal inauguration. joining me now, former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, john rosenthal, chairman of stop handgun violence and msnbc contributor michael smer csmerkonish. is this how we see the conversation move forward, with groups backed by every day citizens on either side i guess putting if you will their stake in the ground and not letting us forget newtown and the promises made by the administration to put some kind of legislation forward? >> right. the great thing about gabby giffords group is to keep the pressure on. what happens in the horrible mass murders is we all get upset, riled up, wonderful memorial ceremonies and then the pressure eases off as time elapses. well, the gifford group will contribute to a lot of other groups and make sure that that doesn't happen this time. this time, we are all very, very serious about this. and it has to get done and there are common sense things which the american people overwhelmingly support. for instance, making background check mandatory. no more gun show exemptions, no more internet exemptions and sup
.s. senator chuck hagel. in four hours, president obama is expected to name hagel as his choice for defense secretary. that nomination could be bruising. hagel is known for being fiercely independent and the loudest outcry could come from hagel's own fellow republicans. they say he's the wrong choice to oversee the military. the combat veteran, who was badly wounded in vietnam, is openly wary of armed conflict. >> the pain, and we didn't have any medics there with us, and we did have some guys, again, that i think were in pretty bad shape. the morphine and everything was used for them. >> you know, if i ever get out of all this, i am going to do everything i can to assure that war is a last resort. that we, a nation, a people, calls upon to settle a dispute. the horror of it, the pain of it, the suffering of it. >> hagel won two purple hearts for his service in vietnam. he also saved the life of his brother, who was fighting alongside him. hagel has also long called for cuts in defense spending. national correspondent jim acosta is on capitol hill to set the stage. jim, some republicans say
for that report. >>> the obama administration may be stepping up its push for some form of new gun control legislation. but will the president be able to rally the support of congress? most importantly, the american public at the same time? we'll dig deeper with our chief political analyst gloria borger. here's what the president recently said on "meet the press." i'll play the clip. >> we're not going to get this done unless the american people decide it's important. and so this is not going to be simply a matter of me spending political capital. one of the things that you learn, having now been in this office for four years, is the old adage of public opinion. without public opinion there's not something you can't do and wut it there's very little you can't get done in this town. i'm going to be putting my full weight behind it. >> now, remind our viewers why so many democrats have been reluctant to even talk about gun control over these past several years. >> yeah. it's almost 20 years, wolf. it goes back to 1994. that was the big election which republicans took control of the congress.
. president obama is announcing his new cabinet choices that will shape the future of the u.s. military as well as defense policy and intelligence gathering. the next hour, two more cabinet nominees will be named. former senator chuck hagel for defense secretary and homeland security adviser john brennan for cia director. he has already picked senator john kerry as his nominee for secretary of state. president's choice, chuck hagel for defense secretary already coming under some fire. some republicans point to comments that hagel made back in 2007, that they perceive as anti-jewish. here is how south carolina lindsey graham described the decision to nominate hagel. >> this is an in-your-face nomination by the president to all of us who are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon. little, if any. i think it's an incredibly controversial choice. and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in-your-face term. >> want to bring in our white house correspondent brianna keilar. we no that the white house has been callin
in afghanistan scenario? >> reporter: hi, martha. all the obama administration will say is it is an option, a possibility, something they're looking at but clearly they're signaling to afghan president hamid karzai that the days of tens of thousands of u.s. troops in afghanistan, we have 66,000 there now, are coming to an end. >> the u.s. does not have, again, an inherent objective of x number of troops in afghanistan. we have an objective of making sure there is no safe haven for al qaeda within afghanistan and making sure that the afghan government has a security force that is sufficient again to insure the stability of the afghan government and the denial of that safe haven. >> reporter: sources tell fox that the white house is looking at troop levels below 10,000 by the end of 2014. just a year ago there was talk it would be more in the 10,000 to 30,000 troop range but that apparently has changed significantly. presidents obama and karzai will meet on friday to discuss this and other issues including the thorny issue for legal immunity for any u.s. troops that do remain behind. karzai
